Let me start off this by saying that before I could even get a picture of the Iron-Tek Beet Energizer (pre-workout), Scott had already used it all and tossed the container (even after I asked him not to!). He loved it because:
- He’s obsessed with beets
- It gave him great energy without making him jittery
- He didn’t crash after drinking it
- It contains no preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners
I loved it for all of the above reasons as well, minus #1 because I don’t love beets, but it didn’t taste overly like beets either.
It’s very, very difficult to find a pre-workout (or really any supplement for that matter) that doesn’t have a ton of junk (including food coloring for no reason). Fitness and nutrition should not be difficult and Iron-Tek agrees. They went back to the basics and crafted a system of workout supplements to help.
The Beet Energizer we mentioned is a food blend of beet, coffeeberry, guayusa, coconut water with electrolytes. It is a pre-workout that you take 30-90 minutes before your workout to give you the energy you need to perform your best.
Another product that we love is the Hydro Recovery. We aim to drink this within 30 minutes of our workout. We use it after gym sessions and after our hiking adventures. The hydro recovery is a 4 in 1 blend of tart cherry, BCAAs, electrolytes and coconut water. It is very refreshing after a sweating workout session and helps to reduce recovery time and replenish electrolyte minerals lost.
If all of this talk about working out has you ready to get sweaty, I made a new workout just for you. Try it out and don’t forget to hydrate pre-and post workout with Iron-Tek’s Beet Energizer and Hydro Recovery.
This workout is a tabata style work and is 16-minutes long (as listed) but can be repeated twice for a 32-minute workout. There are four circuits that you will repeat four times, working for 20 seconds and taking a 10 second rest in between each.
Below are a few more reasons why we love Iron-Tek:
- No artificial flavors or sweeteners
- Non-GMO ingredients
- All of the non-dairy products do not contain crustacean shellfish, fish, egg, soybean, wheat, or peanuts
- All products are purity tested
- Protein is made with milk from rBGH and rBST-free cows
